AEW was originally going to be called ‘World’s Best Wrestling’

TBS + TNT Summer TCA 2019 - Green Room

This is an amazing little tidbit from Tony Khan on the AEW Unrestricted podcast (via Wrestling Inc) on what the original name for the promotion that would become All Elite Wrestling was going to be:

“It wasn’t AEW to begin with. Actually, my first idea was something called ‘World’s Best Wrestling’ which, at the end of the day, similar meaning to All Elite Wrestling trying to say we’re doing great wrestling.”

Can you imagine the likes of Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone welcoming us to WBW each and every week? It would have been incredible!

AEW is okay too, I guess.
